Have just fitted a second hd into pc (Running XP). In boot up info it shows as 30752Mb which is ok as drive is supposed to 30Gb. In XP under My computers the size only shows up as 11.91 Gb. In the disc management console it shows as 11.92 Gb in top panel but in bottom panel where it is labelled Disk 1 it is 28.63 Gb. It is also shown as Healthy and Active. I intend to use this disk to make a clone of the current active drive just in case of future problems but 11.91 Gb would not be bif enough. How do I get windows to recognise the correct size of the drive?
Bottom panel in Disk management does not show any extended/logical parts. Disk 0 does as I have added an extended partition to that. The 'new' disk was fdisked to get rid of old partitions and then reformatted in the old pc it was in using a floppy startup disk. If I made a mistake and only partitioned part of it how could I correct in XP ( i.e. without removing the drive and putting back in old pc?
